As the date for the deadline for the expulsion of residents of the 15 homes in the Netiv Avot neighborhood of Elazar approaches, residents announce they will not leave peacefully but plan to remain inside to prevent the eviction and demolition of the community.
Gil Bar Lev, a resident of Netiv HaAvot, whose home is slated for demolition, said: “Our feeling is very difficult, a feeling of injustice, and the straw that broke the camel’s back is the recent High Court decision. It was possible to save six houses almost completely, but the High Court rejected this out of hand.”
He added: “They offer us temporary solutions and promise that there is nothing behind them, they simply throw us out, we are not prepared to be Amona and Migron, so we will object physically. We demand that the prime minister begin to govern and provide a real solution to the problem of the residents.”
